"Got a sweet tooth? [Sugar Baby] will school you in everything from rock candy to puff pastries. And Bullock-Prado . . . makes it look easy" (Ladies' Home Journal).
Cookbooks with recipes for baking with sugar (in the oven) continue to top the bestseller lists. And yet, no one has set out to do a cookbook with recipes on cooking with sugar (on the stovetop)—until now. In Sugar Baby, Gesine Bullock-Prado offers totally unintimidating step-by-step advice; the simplest instructions; recipes for candy, confections, and treats that integrate stovetop work into finished desserts; and a hilarious voice. Organized by temperature and chemical stages, here are more than 100 recipes for lollipops, caramel, rock candy, chocolate mousse, macarons, marshmallows, pudding pops, cakes, and much more. Sugar Baby will satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooth.
